With the usual apologies for duplication and request for appropriate
cross-posting -

On behalf of the Local and Program Chairs, and the CATaC Executive
Committee, I'm very pleased to pass on to you the first CFP for CATaC
(Cultural Attitudes towards Technology and Communication) '10: diffusion
2.0: computing, mobility, and the next generations. Venue: University of
British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.  Dates: 15-18 June, 2010.

The CATaC conference series provides a premier international forum for
current research on how diverse cultural attitudes shape the implementation
and use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The conference
series brings together scholars from around the globe who provide diverse
perspectives, both in terms of the specific culture(s) they highlight in
their presentations and discussions, and in terms of the discipline(s)
through which they approach the conference theme.

Original full papers (especially those which connect theoretical frameworks
with specific examples of cultural values and practices) and short papers
(e.g. describing current research projects and preliminary results) are
invited. Topics of particular interest include but are not limited to:

Mobile technologies in developing countries New layers of imaging and
texting interactions fostering and/or threatening cultural diversity
Theoretical and practical approaches to analyzing "culture" Impact of mobile
technologies on privacy and surveillance Gender, sexuality and identity
issues in social networks Cultural diversity in e-learning and/or m-learning
Both short (3-5 pages) and long (10-15 pages) original papers are sought.
See submissions for information about submitting papers and formatting

Please see the conference web site - - for
further details regarding accommodations, submission procedures, etc.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to welcoming you to
Vancouver in 2010!
